LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A U.S. Navy spokesman says one sailor was killed and five were injured during a training exercise at Fort Knox in Kentucky.

Lt. David Lloyd, a spokesman for the Naval Special Warfare Group Two in Virginia Beach, Va., said the six sailors were riding in a Humvee as part of a convoy on the post when the accident occurred Wednesday night.

Lloyd said the cause of the accident remains under investigation and he had no other details.

Five sailors sustained minor injuries and were treated and released from a hospital.

The U.S. Navy has used Fort Knox as a training ground since World War II.
